New Brooklyn-based label Melodize impresses us with a 3-track EP from label owner Beartrax, featuring a killer remix from none other than John Tejada.
The EP opens with Tejada’s remix of the track Clarity, a bouncy groover of epic proportions thanks to the capacious pads and heartfelt arpeggios. Next up is Beartrax’s version, more of a slow burner as the piano stabs slowly build towards the climactic violin solo (performed by Beartrax himself, somewhat of a virtuoso). Haunted Chalice is an uplifting end to the EP with it’s warm pads and comforting chord progressions. Overall an impressive debut from this promising artist and label.
